Registrations are now open for Implementing the PSC Framework for protecting worker mental health. This webinar will explore how the PSC Framework can be implemented, its impact on psychosocial working conditions and how it will improve psychological health and engagement in the workplace.
The Psychosocial Safety Climate (PSC) Framework delivers an evidence-based method for risk assessment and intervention design for best practice psychosocial hazard management. PSC concerns priorities, policies, practices and procedures to prevent stress and protect psychological health. It is a lead indicator for job design and management contexts that impact worker health and organisational productivity outcomes.
The presenters will discuss how the PSC Framework can be implemented, its impact on psychosocial working conditions and how it will improve psychological health and engagement in the workplace.
